Patrick was a 56 year old man who had been suffering from AIDS and associated issues for years. He was unemployed, without significant assets resulting from fall several months prior that shattered both his wrists so he was unable to work, drive or deal with other daily tasks. With four needed surgeries and a long road to recovery ahead of him, a disability insurance mistake meant an unexpected delay that left him without funds to pay his bills. The Rob Benzon Foundation approved a grant for his rent to prevent his impending eviction and thus allow him the time to heal without further hardship.

Grant was made August 2019
